Surgical Approach in Craniofacial Fibrous Dysplasia: Case Report and Integrative Review
Fibrous dysplasia is a benign and pseudoneoplasic osteopathy with slow progression, characterized by the replacement of normal bone by an excessive proliferation of fibrous connective tissue cell, interspersed with irregular bone trabeculae. In general, it affects 1 between 4,000 to 10,000 individuals living births.This is a not familiar, congenital disorder, which produces around 2.5% of all bone tumors and more than 7% of all non-malignant bone tumors. This article aims to present a clinical case of monostotic fibrous dysplasia in jaw, proceeding with its surgical correction and to make a review of literature, describing the most important aspects and the major controversies.
